Creature — Elf Scout
When Silhana Wayfinder enters the battlefield, look at the top four cards of your library. You may reveal a creature or land card from among them and put it on top of your library. Put the rest on the bottom of your library in a random order.
Silhana Wayfinder Discussion

Frank_Glascock I think Control_Train has a very very nice framework for us to build on. I like the whole toolbox aspect of the deck and always trying to find a solution to what we encounter.
Destructor Dragon I've cut today as well and put Massacre Wurm in a 6 for a 6 drop. Sounds about right. If I need an effect like the Dragon I'll probably go for Woodfall Primus because it destroys something on entering the battlefield.
The Silhana Wayfinder I've cut 2 weeks ago, super mediocre. And I run the same creatures as you do: Sheoldred, Kokusho and Mindslicer. All very very good creatures in my opinion.
Sylvan Wayfinder I ran from the start, protecting meren at the cost of one land is super fine in my opinion :)
The list of instants and sorceries and enchantments what you swapped I kinda understand. Even tho I do see the value of Casualties of War and Mausoleum Secrets but If I had a imperial seal I would probably run it over Mausoleum as well :)
I agree with you with dismember being the weakest spotremoval, that's why I've cut it as well. I might try out the Sylvan Library again as well. I got it in my binder.
Sol Ring I havent really missed and Lightning Greaves I havent seen yet since I've added it too the deck. I think it will do it's work like it normally does.
I understand the prowling serpopard :) I have the same, more and more people are playing control in our meta, so I might add him too the deck again. Or maybe even better, add a Cavern of Souls just so meren can't be countered. This way I dont have to use another spot in my deck. And meren can get everything that's being countered back from the grave I guess...

Ripwater, thanks for the reply. I always look forward with much anticipation to your input.
Everytime I try to move away from Control_Train's list I end up putting back in his card's that I cut.
Silhana Wayfinder is subpar. We have discussed my view that Destructor Dragon is overcosted. I agree with your theory that Massacre Girl would threaten Meren so I am hesitant to play her. I like having Kukusho and Sheoldred to help close out games. Am I wrong that Control_Train's list lacks any closers?
He has played Mindslicer in the past. The theory behind this card's inclusion is solid. We should be able to play top deck much better than our opponents by utilizing the graveyard. It is a nice inclusion for our Birthing Pod chain. How has it performed for you?
Is Sylvan Safekeeper a recent addition? I thought for sure you were not playing this card as of last week.
Pattern of Rebirth , Dismember , Mausoleum Secrets , Casualties of War , and Final Parting were replaced by Birthing Pod , Sylvan Library , Survival of the Fittest a Imperial Seal and Guardian Project in my list.
I only have reservations concerning Casulties of War. The three tutors (or tutor engines) I am playing have proven to be superior to his across all formats. Sylvan Library is a green staple, and is an extremely strong early turn play. You made a convincing argument in defense of Guardian Project. Dismember seems like the weakest of the removal spells.
I cut Sol Ring but it was like pulling teeth and may make way back into the deck. I tutor for Sylvan Safekeeper frequently and the deck tutors creatures easier than artifacts. Still, Lightning Greaves should be in my list. Safekeeper is the superior card in my opinion but this deck has to have Meren on board. Has Lightning Greaves been effective for you?
As a side note, it does not seem Control_Train reinserts cards he cuts. I wish I could say the same. I put Prowling Serpopard back into the deck. Chalk it up to an irrational fear of blue countermagic. No attempts at justification will be made for its inclusion.

Traverse the Ulvenwald also grabs depths, provided that you have delirium active, which shouldn't be hard in a Meren build. Same with Satyr Wayfinder , Grisly Salvage , and Silhana Wayfinder , among many others (though those only dig up to five cards deep).

If possible I'd consider swapping out the Crushing Canopy s plus the multani's or something for a couple copies of both Thrashing Brontodon and Kraul Harpooner . Just a way to cover the same bases while adding to your critical mass of chonkers. New Vivien, Champion of the Wilds might be a sweet include in this also when she becomes available.
That said I think the best avenue for improvement would be the sideboard. There aren't any popular decks that are gonna have consistent targets for Broken Bond or Plummet when it matters and I'm not sure what matchups Silhana Wayfinder and the twins are coming in against. Cards like Thrash / Threat , Sorcerous Spyglass , Shapers' Sanctuary and Find / Finality seem like decent sideboard options.
If wildcards are in short supply you might want to consider the following: - Atzocan Archer (decent against mono tempo+ weenie sometimes) - Colossal Majesty (winmoorish but fun) - Diamond Mare - Dryad Greenseeker (card advantage) - Kraul Foragers - Kraul Harpooner - Thrashing Brontodon

Kessig Cagebreakers is another way to make creatures from a full graveyard.
Pitiless Plunderer makes you some treasure for those creatures you are sacrificing.
The weaker cards in your deck appear to be:
Desecration Demon from my experience, when an opponent gets to choose they always choose the option you didn't want them to take.
Silhana Wayfinder LOTS of better ways to search; especially in black.
Vicious Conquistador probably just going to make everyone at the table annoyed early and a really bad card late.
Hope this helps with your build. You have some good synergy here. There are better versions of some cards you are playing, but you seem like you have a solid base.

Some days ago (many days) you made me some suggestions to my TRY JUND! deck, and I decided to try to give you some suggestions to compensate that, but as soon as I saw this deck I saw all the suggestions that you have been given, and I thought: "WOW, I have arrived late".
I love this deck, and the only suggestions that I have are Kaya's Wrath as a mass-renmoval, and Revival / Revenge to Reanimate your creatures with enter-the-batlefielt-triggers (like Silhana Wayfinder and Knight of Autumn ), and the most important... it can Reanimate your Resplendent Angel . Also in the late-game Revival / Revenge can be a key factor to win the game (in the "Revenge" mode).

Hexaflexagon I definitely do like the idea, but I unfortunately own 0 Lyra Dawnbringer and 0 Resplendent Angel . A true Angels deck might be a fun conversion if I do decide to fork over 120 bucks for the lovely ladies. Would drop the Kaya's Wrath s I'm adding in, the chupacabras, and the revitalizes to make room. Thanks for the idea. I checked out your deck and am definitely replacing all my Llanowar Elves with Silhana Wayfinder . At this point I'm considering Vivien Reid for some green card draw perhaps.
Trying to add some consistency by cutting one-ofs.
